Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

Up­cy­cling is all about tak­ing some­thing that was once beau­ti­ful and restor­ing it to its orig­i­nal glory — with a twist. That’s what the Re-Love Pro­ject is all about. From shabby twin beds to tired look­ing wardrobes, preloved tim­ber fur­ni­ture is trans­formed. De­sign lovers can fol­low the trans­for­ma­tion on In­sta­gram (in­sta­­_wat­son/) and Pin­ter­est (pin­ter­ feast­wat­son/re-love-pro­ject-2015/) and bid on items. “Each of the Re-Love de­sign­ers are highly re­garded in their own right and have kindly do­nated their time and ex­per­tise to a wor­thy cause for the Salvos Stores,’’ Feast Wat­son’s James Fisher says. De­sign­ers also cre­ated how-to guides so con­sumers can recre­ate their looks or be inspired. The other 2015 Re-Love Pro­ject col­lab­o­ra­tors are:
